Master Bathroom Makeover

11 Materials
2 Weeks

Master Bathroom make over using Bead Board and project Boards. Added New flooring and removed popcorn ceilings. Cabinet makeover, replaced tub but love the cabinet Idea❤️

Started by removing old jacuzzi first and capped off water lines by using shut off valves.

Painted and destressed the project boards then used a brad gun and liquid Nail to attach them to the wall.

After designing the accent wall we put up the white Bead board which I layer painted.

Put Bead board up.

Then started scraping ceilings by spraying water to wet the ceiling then removing with a wide scraper

Pic of scraper I used

Then we layed new plywood down by using a nail Gun.

Then I kilzed the bathroom cabinets and the bead board. . I took left over Bead board and measuring the door I cut pieces to fill in the outside of the cabinet doors as I wanted something interesting not boring so I had this brain storm and this is what I came up with. Then I changed hardware and knobs on the doors. I wanted to make the bathroom vintage/antique looking

I glued the bead board on with liquid nail and filled in any cracks I didnt want with DAP. Then painted it. Using a piece of sea sponge I made the bead Board looked distressed to match the accent wall.

This was before we started anything. This really needed to be pic #1

This is our finished project. This really wasnt a cheap makeover though. But thought someone may like the cabinet idea and how to remove the popcorn ceilings or distress the project boards. I hung an old antique lamp in the corner that I was blessed to find for 20 dollars . This was a lot of work but so rewarding. I LOVE this bathroom!!

I added stencils on the front of the drawers and printed off roses from clip art then modge podged them on the sides. I did not want boring ..then added on beautiful glass knobs

Then painted the hardware to the lamp and the chains a silver

Made. My homemade decore using a board I had in my shop and letters, beads and ribbon purchased from Hobby Lobby.

Then painted my vanity and hung my doors

I have many more pucs and steps any questions feel free to ask. I hope you get some use from my project

    This is just georgous. The only question I have is where do u put your shampoo at in a claw foot tub? I didn't see any built in cabbies on the wall. Just curious because I want a claw foot tub so bad.

    How’d you create the different dimensions and directions of the design that’s similar to a shiplap look? Do you fill the bead holes in with something how’d you get the smooth center ??

      Start looking on line for deals. If you have the time, you will find them. Also, you can use the same theme only in a different color. Check your local paint stores for colored paint that someone returned. You may find a color you really like. Keep looking.
